Congratulations!


I made this card using the above sketch for the May Card Challenge with Scrapping Everyday Miracles (http://scrappingeverydaymiracles.blogspot.com/2014/05/may-1st-challenges-post-draft.html)- you have until May 26 if you wanna play along! I made a wedding card to mail to a lady's son that is getting married the 31st of this month. The lady, Tracy, babysat me as a child and I have kept up with her on Facebook and sent her a Christmas card and she sent me one as well this past year. They also sent me an invitation to the wedding, but I won't be attending. It's in Kentucky and I don't really know them. I knew her older children. I thought it was only fair that I made them a card! Now for the details! The card base is Studio G. The brown polka dotted ribbon was on a stack of post-it notes so I decided to keep it for my scrappin! This is the first time I've used it and I have a few more pieces of it left! The purple and baby blue ribbon strips are from my stash. I've lost the original packaging, but they do have self-adhesive on them. The butterfly ribbon is American Crafts Spring Pink Premium Ribbon. The rose ribbon is American Crafts Peachy Keen Premium Ribbon. The floral ribbon is Studio G Printed Adhesive Ribbon. The green bling/water spots are also from my stash. The Congratulations sticker is Sticko Black Tie Phrases. The flowers were punched on the card when I bought the card set. The flower centerpiece is also from my stash and I added a green water spot for the center of the flower. It's 2 different flowers layered with 2 green leaves behind just to give the card some flair. Now for the inside:
I found this from The Cutting Cafe (http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com) as part of the Everyday Block Sentiments. It includes wedding or bride & groom, birthday, celebrate, get well soon, friends forever, and keep calm. I have using the birthday one and this one and still have the others to make cards or scrap with! I will write a brief note in the card and get it in the mail soon. I have also been SMASHin and made a graduation card this week that I will share in another blog post. I thought this card was enough for one post since I'm entering it in the challenge with Scrapping Everyday Miracles. I will try to post the card and SMASH entry tomorrow afternoon. Have a great Memorial Day weekend if you don't stop by again beforehand! TFL! :)
